Remote Viewing Challenges Scientific Fundamentals

I’ll start this story in 1930, when Albert Einstein contributed his preface to Upton Sinclair’s Mental Radio— Upton’s published experiments in to telepathy:

 “The results of the telepathic experiments carefully and plainly set forth in this book stand surely far beyond those which a nature investigator holds to be thinkable…. In no case should the psychologically interested circles pass over this book heedlessly.” Signed, A. Einstein.1

Around that same time Einstein was coming to grips with quantum mechanics and nonlocality. Quantum nonlocality2 indicates that things (photons, electrons, even molecules and small diamonds3 ) separated by space and time4 can still be linked, or entangled. Einstein was not put off by the possibility of telepathy, since —while telepathy seems to violate classical (Newtonian) mechanics— the notion of telepathy would violate no laws of quantum mechanics.

Quit on a High Point

From Stanford Research Institute – International, p. 173:

Traditionally, learning of a new skill concentrates on rote repetition, reiterating the skill a large number of times until it is consistently performed correctly. But recent developments in learning theory, which have been applied with particular success in sports-training methodology, indicate that the rote repetition concept tends more to reinforce incorrect performance as opposed to developing the proper behavior or skill. Much success has been realized by implementing the concept of “quitting on a high point”. That is, when a skill or behavior has been executed correctly, taking an extended break from the training at that point allows the learning processes to “remember” the correct behavior by strengthening the neurological relays that have been established in the brain by the correct procedure.

Difficult Times

Yes, things are difficult. Relationship, job, economy, planet… even hair is difficult.

But look what can come from difficult times. When our founding fathers left England, surely times were difficult for them. What did they do? They created The Declaration of Independence. (Thanks, Nancy McMoneagle)

When shit is all around you, do you whither, or do you grow?
